I’ve been looking for an answer to this question at Shadowbox’s forums, and haven’t found a working solution. Despite I though the answer was to stop requesting to Michael Jackson to change the way a title works but waiting until someone adds a description or caption feature to it, I couldn’t resist myself on doing it!
Of course there could be more elegant solutions, but I got dizzy when trying to track all the places where the sizes are changed. I wanted to convert the height of the title text block from the initial ‘auto’ to a pixel size so Shadowbox can use it in the normal functions, but there were paddings and other values animated… too much for a night, and for a script I didn’t create.
Finally, the -100px initial position for the title’s “appearing” motion I got hours ago (which I ignored to go for a dynamic one) made the trick. The motion is so fast that you couldn’t see the difference.
